    Hello Mr Smith. I have a question. A local musicdealer here in Stockholm (SWEDEN) told me Yamaha made a deal with a famous bassist several years ago. The stock model was made by yamaha and the model the artist got was a custom made bass by you. Is there any truth in this? Or is it just nonsense? He asl said this is the standard way yamaha makes signature models, both basses and guitars. Is there any truth in this or is it nonsense?
